No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them.

– Joshua 1:5-6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Joshua was faced with a terrifying situation; Moses, the leader who stabilized the Israelites in the wilderness, had died. Now Joshua had the task of leading this people into a land that he had little knowledge of. Like Joshua, God challenges us to be strong and courageous as we face life situations that we have never faced before. We need to remind ourselves that God is with us in Jesus Christ. Anything less is unbelief.
